This is the best way to get an understanding of the Delta. Chilly Billy was outstanding - informative, funny and happy to be quite forthright with his stories. I would recommend this tour to anybody who is visiting Clarksdale to really appreciate the history and music of the region.

My friend and I had one thing planned in Clarksdale, Chilly Billy’s Bohemian Tour. We were beyond impressed with Chillys knowledge and the history of the area. We learned so much and met some of his musician friends that we were able to see perform (Sean Apple at the Bad Apple club)
We highly recommend booking with Chilly when visiting this unique area. Best thing we did in the Delta!

I don’t think I can add a lot to all of the other great reviews for this tour with Billy. We did a 3 hr tour and learned so much about the Delta region, the Blues, Tennessee Williams, and so much more. His vast knowledge of the area and people added so much more than reciting a script. Billy has lived a thousand lives and it’s fascinating to listen to him weave the narrative.
Billy communicated well before the trip and was prompt at picking us up at our hotel.
The price is steep— $175.
I must add this important bit of information before you book: Billy is not vaccinated and he will not wear a mask. Know that you’re going to spend 3 hours in an enclosed vehicle with someone who is unvaccinated. He should probably put this on his website or at least let people know when they book a tour.

Thank you for the positive comments you made here! Much appreciated! I do wish you had not publicly shared my private HIPAA information! When asked by you about my vaxx status, I graciously replied and kindly offered to cancel the tour and you opted to take it, while stating you were vaccinated and y’all wore a masks! You should have been fine! Thank you again for taking a tour; I enjoyed our time together! Chilly Billy 😃

Andre and I decided to spend Labor Day weekend in Clarksdale. Even though we were somewhat familiar with the history of the town and the geographic area’s importance in generating artistic talent, our true understanding of the area and its magic was limited. Being from a similar region (Acadiana) which has its own unique spin on music and its focus on maintaining and nurturing cultural identity, we knew we would never be able to get the type of narrative Billy provided for us on our own because it is the same where we live: you have to take the time to listen to the people who live there to hear the community’s heartbeat and to hear the echoes of the past speak through the people who value its preservation. It is evident Billy values quality time and creating human connection. He is a courier of memory, and to me, that is one of the most valuable components of the human experience. Our time with Billy was well-paced, serendipitous (stopping along the way to tell locals “hello” by name or asking if that was a new dog they had), informative, and comfortable. He is a treasure.

What a fun way to learn about the Mississippi Delta! Spending a few hours with Chilly Billy is an education about a part of the country most of us don't know much about. I have a much greater respect for the history and the way of life. And you can ask all the questions you want.

If you’re looking for a quick drive-by, cursory glance of Clarksdale and environs, this isn’t the tour for you. What Billy does provide is a rich, fascinating view of Clarksdale’s storied past and the great, foundational American music it produced. He and his family are rooted in Clarksville, so the tour is knowledgeable, authentic, and personal. You can walk the cotton fields near the original site of Muddy Waters’ cabin, learn of Tennessee Williams’ time in Clarksdale, and discover a tiny, tucked-away restaurant with the best fried shrimp in the area. His tour is the perfect scene-setter for your visit to Clarksdale!

Mike, many thanks for coming to the Delta and for taking a tour!! And, thanks for the comment about the tour not being for just a cursory understanding of this unique area! Cheers! See y’all down the road! Chilly 🙏❤️😃

This tour is a must. The Delta is a funky and complicated place, and no one can unravel the intricacies and nuance like Chilly Billy during a Delta Bohemian Tour. A friend and I visited from Colorado and were blown away by Chilly Billy’s knowledge, authenticity, and passion about his home town. From the cool comfort of his red Jeep, Billy engages in fun and informative conversations about the socioeconomics, culture, and geography of the Delta. He made sure to learn about us as guests and catered the discussion based on our interests and experiences. We bumped into several local blues artists and colorful characters during the tour, and left feeling a deep familiarity with this place that you just can’t get by walking through a museum.

Cheers Chilly Billy. Lookimg forward to seeing you again.

Chilly Billy is most informative when relaying facts and history of the Coahoma County and Clarksdale community and area. Billy’s vocabulary and intelligence is profound, explaining many stories and the history of the two hour tour Billy also provided us with restaurant recommendations and other highlights. Billy, it was a pleasure to have you show us the many sights Clarksdale and the county provided. We highly recommend Bohemian Tours!

It is what it is and it is GREAT. Billy is warm, easy-going, clear-speaking and knows what he’s talking about, giving a tour that completely satisfied our touring trio that included a Clarksdale visitor, a newcomer, and a long time resident. I expect I will take another Chilly Billy tour with another group of friends in the near future.

My wife and I took this tour during the 2021 Juke Joint Festival. We had read all of the great reviews and since we are Blues enthusiasts, we were sold! We decided on the 2 hour tour. Billy picked us up at our hotel promptly and off we went. We went all over Clarksdale. We went to areas I never knew existed. Billy shared a ton of information about Clarksdale's history and how big a part the Blues played in the city. He really knows his stuff and he also shared some of his personal experiences with many famous music artists that he has met over the years (not just Blues artists).
Our next tour will be at least 3 hours so we can travel out a little further from Clarksdale and visit more of the birth places of more famous Blues artists.
We highly recommend this tour with Billy!

Thanks Billy and keep on Bluesin'!
